Avocado Carrier Oil contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, and Beta carotene. It is classified as a monounsaturated oil and is best suited for dry skin conditions in topical applications.
1. Moisturizes and nourishes
In addition to vitamin E, avocado oil contains potassium lecithin, and many other nutrients
that can nourish and moisturize the skin.
The outermost layer of skin, known as the epidermis, easily absorbs these nutrients, which also help to form new skin.
2. Relieves inflammation from psoriasis and eczema
The antioxidants and vitamins in avocado oil may help to heal the dry, irritated, and flaky skin associated with eczema and psoriasis.
A person with a skin condition may wish to test a patch of skin first, to ensure that the oil does not trigger or aggravate their symptoms.
- Prevents and treats acne When left on for short periods of time and rinsed off with warm water, avocado oil can keep skin hydrated without leaving an oily residue. This may reduce the risk of acne.
- Accelerates wound healing
Avocado oil may help wounds to heal more quickly.
Fatty acids and oleic acids in avocado oil can promote collagen synthesis, which is the process of creating new connective tissue.
Common Uses: Avocado Oil is typically added to other
carrier oils in order to enrich protein and vitamin content. It is used predominantly by manufacturers (particularly great in soaps, lotions and creams) and massage therapists.

Absorption: Avocado Carrier Oil will leave a sticky, waxy feel if applied topically to large areas of skin.
